But there is a great possibility to change this situation.

By using various digital tools on fishing boats to reduce losses in the industry, it is also possible to tackle the major challenges of ocean fishing. 

Instead of pen and paper, sensors and satellites 

Of the world's more than 10,000 large international fisheries organizations, only a small fraction use large-scale data sets and modern technologies for fishing. Most fisheries cannot even monitor the volume and extent of their catch.

Earlier, data collection in the fisheries industry, like any other activity, was usually paper-based. Later the data was put into spreadsheets and used for analysis. But this entire work would take a month. And there was a lot of risk of making mistakes.

However, several companies are now fishing with a large fleet of "smart boats" using satellite and cellular networks. As a result, it is becoming possible to create huge data stores in real time.

The use of technology will increase new employment, increase income and protect the environment 

Currently, 10 percent of the world's population derives their income from food resources extracted from the sea. However, the livelihood of many more people can be provided by improving this age-old fishing management.

At the same time, another 80 billion dollars can be added to the international economy.

Modern technology will help tackle one of the biggest threats to the environment caused by overfishing in the ocean. One-third of the world's fisheries are now threatened by unregulated fishing. However, this situation can be changed if the activities of this industry are controlled using the right technology, the evidence of which is being seen now.

The use of modern technology can make fishing and related management more efficient. This will help fishermen to increase their profits. At the same time the marine ecology will also be protected. 

Today, the use of various technologies is changing the way this industry works 

Using technology to extract more resources while keeping the ocean alive has become imperative. And in this case, let's know about some potential initiatives from different parts of the world that are currently being used. 
• Sensors: The quantity and level of fish catch is being monitored in real time through sensors. And to reduce the cost behind this work, a new system of smart boats is being tested in the North West Pacific under an organization called 'EDF'.

 • Artificial Intelligence: Artificial intelligence is being used in fishing. Fish are being identified and counted by looking at images and videos with the help of artificial intelligence or AI. Scientists in Alaska are experimenting with using machine learning to automate the process of monitoring fisheries and save costs.

 • Improved Network: With the help of improved network it is also possible to make fishing more environmentally friendly. Various fishing data are sent and received quickly in Sweden. Fishermen in the country can check their fishing quotas online and trade quotas with other fishermen.

How smart bots can play a role in this industry 

Technology is advancing so fast now that we may see even more new types of smart boats in the near future. Those boats will be equipped with modern cameras, trackers, sensors and various data collection devices.

A lot more data can be processed and analyzed with onboard computers and data analytics. Again via satellite and cellular modems, data will be delivered in real time from marine researchers to managers and wholesalers.

Also fishermen can easily communicate with their families while at sea. This will increase their standard of living and more people will be interested to work in this industry.

A digital revolution in the fishing industry will empower fishermen. At the same time, it will enable everyone associated with this industry to make the right decisions. This will increase the production of fish in the sea, in the same way we will get more food and professional fishermen will be better off.
